Taught Horse to Paw today.

Well I had a bit of a goal to teach my horse to paw and was hoping she would learn it in a day. Yay she did, I love her so much and only her matters. I don't even care what others protest about this.

So all you need to do is tap her on the elbow and say paw (not hard) and she paws. I hope when I ride her she is able to do it most probably. Im hoping to teach her some other things, which she will learn because she is such a smart horse.

id be very careful with teaching a horse to paw, it can turn into habit.

One of the agisters where I use to live taught there horse to shake which was cute...but everytime they would put coat on he would try to wrap his leg around ur neck thinking you want him to shake..so be careful..can be quiet dangerous habit

I wouldn't let it turn into habit, the que for her pawing is very distinct and is by voice and by touch on her elbow. When I come to bring her hay she never paws or is demanding for food, she's very respectfull at feeding times. Isn't aggresive when giving food rewards.

You're fooling yourself. You didn't teach her anything. Pawing is a nasty habit that experienced horse people try to discourage, not encourage. She already knows how to paw, you're just encouraging her to do it. When it backfires on you and she starts to paw when you don't want her to, just remember that you're the one responsible for her bad behavior.

You just wanted to brag about how clever you are. Well, it's not clever to encourage a vice in a horse who didn't previously have it. It's downright unintelligent.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I am so happy with my horse, she is very clever and good natured. Today I was training her to trot on a lose rein while leading infront of her, and she did it a couple of times with out having to lead right beside her shoulder. But at first I had to lead at her shoulder and than lead her from the front. She adjusts well to so many things.
